CMS 8th Grade Parents, We are opening up two Summer Slam activities that were previously listed for CHS students . Current 8th graders can now sign up for Girl on Fire and Documentary Filmmaking! These are both amazing opportunities for our students. Girl on Fire 8th grade girls, get ready to put some fire in your step as you learn the basics of women’s self-defense and how to recognize and address problematic relationships. You’ll learn how to form a strong stance, maintain a strong stance when pushed or pulled, and how to stand up into a strong stance. We’ll cover wrist-grab releases, common self-defense strikes, front choke defenses, rear choke defenses, and introductory jiu-jitsu groundwork with a focus on escaping a full mount with your arms pinned and when choked. In addition to discovering your physical strengths, you’ll gain awareness of risks and unhealthy relationships. We’ll discuss healthy communications, boundary-setting skills, internet and personal safety, sexting, consent, verbal defenses, relationship red flags, breaking up an unhealthy relationship, intimate partner violence, assault statistics, de-escalation techniques, bystander approaches, stranger vs non-stranger predators, and trusting one’s intuition. You are your best protector, and this class will empower you with the skills and knowledge to embrace that. Documentary Filmmaking-Documentary Filmmaking Workshop Learn the art of documentary filmmaking from filmmaker, Preston Randolph. In this two week course you will have the opportunity to learn all stages of the documentary filmmaking process, produce your own short documentary and compete against your fellow students at an end of course film festival.

Dear Cody Middle School Parents and/or Guardians, At approximately 10:45 a.m., tomorrow, Friday, February, 25, we will conduct a lockdown drill in our school. This is only a drill. The goal of the lockdown drill is to improve our ability to protect students, save lives, and reduce injuries in the event of a crisis. When conducting these drills, we work closely with local authorities to implement the best possible safety practices. This is the type of response we would conduct should a situation arise that could jeopardize the physical safety of students and/or staff. Staff and students have been trained to wait for an administrator or police officer to release them in the event of a lockdown. This is the method we will use to release students from a lockdown tomorrow. Respectfully, CMS Admin Team
